If you're used to programming in Siemens (or any other platform for that matter), you've probably heared of - or worked with - function blocks.  Function blocks are especially useful to create structure in your program and to encapsulate re-usable blocks of code.

Check out the video above to get some professional insights on how and when to use function blocks in TIA Portal, which traps to avoid (if you're serious about programming) and which best practices to apply to your own PLC applications.  

Although I created this video a couple years ago (actually one of the first training videos I created for TIA Portal), it's concepts are still very relevant today, and very much in-line with the teachings in my PLC and HMI courses.


Hope you enjoy!
